Setebos, Moon of Uranus

Setebos is a Moon that orbits round Uranus rather than the Sun which our Earth orbits round. Its orbit circumference, the total distance it travels round its planetary parent is 123,084,701.12 km. The furthest it gets from its orbital parent (apoasis) is 28,587,699 km. Its mass is estimated/calculated at being 6,294,407,419,008,210 kg. Its density has been calculated at being 1.5 g/cm3. Its volume is 1.5 g/cm3. It was discovered on 13 August 2001 by Dan Milisavljevic, Matthew J. Holman, Brett J. Gladman, John J. Kavelaars, and Tommy Grav.

The Semi-Major Axis of the orbit is 20,430,000 km, which is the furthest point from the centre to the edge of an elliptical point.

The mass of the object is calculated at being 6,294,407,419,008,210 kg. The equatorial circumference of Setebos is 62.8 km. The mean radius of Setebos is 10.0 (assuming an albedo of 0.04) km. The surface area of Setebos is 1,256.64 km2. The surface gravity of the said item is 0.004 m/s2. The average orbit velocity, that is the speed at which it orbits is 1,838.2 km/h.

The orbital inclination, the angle at which Setebos orbits in relation to the orbital plane is 169.793 degrees. The orbital eccentricity is 0.3993, it is the degree at which Setebos orbits close to a circular (0) orbit as opposed to an elliptical (1) orbit.
